Title (EN) POWER CONVERSION SYSTEM FOR NUCLEAR POWER GENERATORS AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈME DE CONVERSION D'ÉNERGIE POUR GÉNÉRATEURS D'ÉNERGIE NUCLÉAIRE ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Various exemplary embodiments of a power conversion system for converting thermal energy from a heat source to electricity are disclosed. In one exemplary embodiment, the power conversion system may include a substantially sealed chamber having an inner shroud having an inlet and an outlet and defining an internal passageway between the inlet and the outlet through which a working fluid passes. The sealed chamber may also include an outer shroud substantially surrounding the inner shroud, such that the working fluid exiting the outlet of the inner shroud returns to the inlet of the inner shroud in a closed-loop via a return passageway formed between an external surface of the inner shroud and an internal surface of the outer shroud. The power conversion system may further include a source heat exchanger disposed in the internal passageway of the inner shroud, the source heat exchanger being configured to at least partially receive a heat transmitting element.
(FR) Divers modes de réalisation donnés à titre d'exemple d'un système de conversion d'énergie pour convertir l'énergie thermique issue d'une source de chaleur en électricité sont décrits. Dans un mode de réalisation donné à titre d'exemple, le système de conversion d'énergie peut comprendre une chambre sensiblement étanche ayant une enveloppe interne comprenant une entrée et une sortie et définissant un passage interne entre l'entrée et la sortie par lequel passe un fluide de travail. La chambre étanche peut également comprendre une enveloppe externe entourant sensiblement l'enveloppe interne, de telle sorte que le fluide de travail sortant par la sortie de l'enveloppe interne revient à l'entrée de l'enveloppe interne dans une boucle fermée par l'intermédiaire d'un passage de retour formé entre une surface externe de l'enveloppe interne et une surface interne de l'enveloppe externe. Le système de conversion peut en outre comprendre un échangeur de chaleur source disposé dans le passage interne de l'enveloppe interne, l'échangeur de chaleur source étant conçu pour recevoir au moins partiellement un élément de transmission de chaleur.
